20 Affordable Watches That Look Like a Million Bucks

A great watch doesn’t have to cost as much as your rent. Yes, it can. But it can also be affordable and well within your price limits. Because while there are definitely a lot of high-end options that are worth your time and attention, on the other end of the spectrum there’s a veritable smorgasbord of stylish, well-made timepieces that cost less than $300 from a number of well-regarded watch brands.

We’re talking the classic Timex, of course, but thanks to brands old and new, we’re also talking about chronographs that look a whole lot more expensive than they are by Michael Kors, dress watches Tissot, sport watches G-Shock, divers by Casio, and more. There’s a lot to sift through, which is why we’ve scoured the market for the most affordable watch deals out there by the best brands, and pulled them all together for you. Here are 20 that are worth your (relatively humble) investment.
